Quoting Quiverfull: Courtship Isn’t Spiritual But It Is Sexual?

quotingquiverfull

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog from 'His Hand in Marriage' as quoted by Vaughn Ohlman at his blog True Love Doesn't Wait - Courtship: That Volatile Sexual RelationshipEditor's note: This is one of those few times I don't entirely disagree with Vaughn Ohlman. Yes, sexual attraction and chemistry exist and they do play an important part in marriage and who we chose to marry. But life outside the Fundamentalist Christian Bubble is just not as sexually charged and focused as it is inside. Most people don't walk around thinking about sex all the time, unless they are a certain sort of sexually repressed Christian man. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Only Christian Men Are Caring Fathers?

quotingquiverfull

by Robert Murray M'Cheyne as quoted by Stephanus Blignaut at Go Tell My People - Governing Your FamilyEditor's note: Granted, this was written during M'Cheyne's life time, the early 1800s, but it seems to be that same train of thought that many in Evangelical Christianity and Quiverfull still cling to, that an 'unsaved' father and man has no care or love for their family, which is a complete lie. Religious thought that is a falsehood does no one any good.  … [Read more...]

Dear Unmarried Woman: Are You An Appetizer or Dessert?

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserJust when I think I’ve heard all there is to hear from Evangelicals about sex, purity, and the like, someone will write or say something that I have not heard before. In other words, not all the nuts have fallen from the tree.Recently, Bethany Jett, a thirty-something married Evangelical woman who writes on girly topics from a godly perspective, wrote a blog article about two reasons why a woman should save herself for marriage. Here’s what Jett had to say: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Just Like That You Changed?

Quoting

by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield in Today's Christian Woman- From Lesbian Professor to Pastor's WifeEditor's note: This seems to be a common theme in Evangelical Christianity, this belief that you can just walk away from the type of sexuality you have lived in for years. Seems wrong to say it's a simple change of thoughts. What do you think dear reader? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Lustful Leggings?

Quoting

by Veronica Partridge from her blog - Why I Chose To No Longer Wear LeggingsEditor's note: She says she is not trying to tell anyone else what they can and cannot wear, that this is about her journey and decision. But she is in an indirect way. Really. More nonsense about men unable to control their eyes, brains and penises. … [Read more...]

‘Gilmore Girls’ and Child Abuse

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Two of the many things I missed out on during my we-didn’t-have-TV childhood were Friends and Gilmore Girls. I’m in the process of rectifying it– thank you very much Netflix– and so far it’s been pretty fun. I really enjoy the way the characters interact with each other, especially how much Lorelai really is almost exactly like her mother … if her mother had pink-furry-telephone taste. I’m also enjoying Rachel’s sudden introduction to paying taxes. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Robbed of Their Primary Dominion?

Quoting

by Andrea Schwartz at The Kingdom Driven Family and as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - Power on Her Head: The Home Field AdvantageEditor's note: Bojidar Marinov is speaking about the minimizing of women's roles in the church by patriarchy along with the petty tin-plated dictatorship by men over their wives that seems to be endemic to the Christian Patriarchy Movement. Andrea's response? To try to explain management roles and job descriptions from the world being applied to the marriage relationship. Sort of like describing a pineapple and the listener drawing an apple instead. She describes a wife as a 'useful reflection' of her husband. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Woman ‘Are’ Equal As Long As They Submit?

Quoting

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Baby Oil on the Bowling BallEditor's note: Now I know this is all so word-salady, verbose, and not the easiest to parse, but if I'm reading it correctly Mr. Wilson is trying to say that there is equality between men and women as long as the wife is submissive and obedient to her husband. … [Read more...]
